Canada workers benefit – Overview


The 2018 federal budget introduced the Canada workers benefit to strengthen and replace the working income tax benefit (WITB). For more information about this new, refundable tax credit, go to Introducing the Canada workers benefit.

The Canada workers benefit (CWB) is a refundable tax credit that provides tax relief for eligible low-income individuals and families who are in the workforce. The CWB includes a disability supplement for individuals who have an approved Form T2201, Disability Tax Credit Certificate, on file with the CRA. If you do not have a Form T2201 on file, send your completed form to the CRA to see if you qualify for the disability supplement.
